Social Distancing, Business Closures, and Shelter-in-Place Orders All Lead to One Thing: A Greater Need for Remote Capabilities – From Collaboration to Entertainment and Everything in Between.

Society as we know it is undergoing massive changes – from individuals staying home more than ever before to social distancing during grocery trips to non-essential businesses, daycares, and schools being shut down. As we see more and more lockdowns taking place, businesses are left with one choice… Embracing the concept of remote work. If they don’t, they’re unable to continue operations. Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen a greater need for remote capabilities in terms of:

  • Collaboration for employees working from home
  • Entertainment in the form of video streaming services
  • Shopping for groceries and/or essentials online
  • Receiving prescriptions for medications via video or phone calls

Essentially, our personal interactions with one another are being forced to turn into virtual interactions. Fortunately, the cloud is paving the way with remote project collaboration, video conferencing, e-commerce, education, gaming, and video streaming companies taking the lead right now.

Have You Talked to Your Clients About Using the Cloud for Remote Work During the COVID-19 Pandemic Yet?

It’s easy to overlook the fact that even a decade ago, none of the remote work we’re seeing during the COVID-19 pandemic would have been possible. The technology behind cloud computing is truly acting as a hero during this difficult, trying time for many. But most of all, it’s acting as a hero for MSPs who need to provide value to the businesses they serve. If you haven’t spoken to your clients about using the cloud for remote work, it’s time to reach out and review how the cloud allows for:

  • Processing, storing, and editing information from home.
  • Running crucial applications and services from home.
  • Working together with one another from home.

Chances are, your clients are well aware of the potential impact the COVID-19 pandemic has on businesses around the world. They know they need to choose between functioning efficiently from home or shutting down. As an MSP, it’s up to you to help them embrace the cloud in terms of:

  • Implementing a cloud-based VoIP system that allows them to access their work phones from home – making and receiving calls and using enterprise-grade features to maintain consistent communication with customers, partners, and colleagues no matter where they’re located.
  • Leveraging a cloud-based productivity suite such as Microsoft Office 365 or a similar alternative that gives them access to their email, calendar, contacts, and applications that enable them to video chat, hold conferences, and access and edit files in real-time for greater collaboration.
  • Moving line of business applications to the cloud including ERP systems, document management systems, accounting systems, CRM systems, human resources systems, and more – giving them access to the tools they need to continue their day-to-day operations from any device or location.
  • Switching to virtual desktop infrastructure that gives your clients the ability to enable employees to work from home – maintaining access to their work desktops, including all of the settings, applications, and security measures already on those desktops for optimal protection.
